Worst arcade flight sim I ever play!!! Absolutely horrible. Outdated graphics even with max setting, poor voice acting, control schemas and gameplay mechanism. Controls are so bad that you can hardly play the game right, especially on helicopter missions. DON"T WASTE YOU MONEY ON THIS!!!

Air Conflicts: Vietnam is disappointing to me seeing as I really liked the previous Air Conflicts games. The previous games were all about fast arcade-style air-to-air and air-to-ground combat in large open arenas, and Vietnam basically gets all of those points wrong. The maps are very small and often obscured by low fog, so you're constantly going past the map's walls. The controls are fiddly and strange, nothing at all like the fluidity of Air Conflicts: Pacific Carriers (which I think is the high point of the franchise).

By far the worst thing about the game is that it interrupts gameplay to deliver cutscenes after the completion of each goal, and these interruptions are frequent. Your goal might be to take out three AA emplacements — which you'll get done within 1-3 minutes since the maps are so small — and then you'll sit through a 20 or 30 second cutscene with hammy voice acting. This will happen about five times per mission.

Give this a miss and try out Pacific Carriers instead. Secret Wars is okay too. I regret buying this game.

It's my favorite game because this:
It has a good campaign, real missions. Good controls. Nice planes, all with cockpit view and other views. Some helicopters with door gunner. It is playable in 3D with a nvidia card, good 3D. Good music and sound.

8,5

Pro: Nice graphics

Cons: very small playing areas. stupid controls (this is NOT a flight simulator). aircraft present in campaigns that did not exist in RL .And my favorite: The Vietnamese are SPEAKING JAPANESE! Aparently, the makers didn't think we might know the difference.

what a waste of money..

Terrible graphics, poor voice acting, uncontrollable aircraft, tiny maps, and you can't set your own control scheme. If you're looking for a flying game then go elsewhere, because there is nothing good here

The bad:
* Boring repetitive gameplay.
* Bad AI.
* Tiny maps.
* Awful quality of maps (ground textures are ugly, lack of objects).
* Graphics are not good (it may looks good on screenshots, but it ugly in motion) - trees and clouds are just plane sprites (reminds me of 2000th).
* Lack of achievements.
* No replay value.
* No simulator control scheme for gamepad.
* Dead and pointless multiplayer.
* Story. Your alter ego is muted. Why Thompson fight for so long? For what? There is no answer.

The good:
* Soundtrack.
* Relatively long campaign.
* About 20 authentic planes and copters.
* You can control up to 6 various aircraft at single mission and switch them freely.
* Random rescure MIA pilots from your squad are interesting for first 1-2 times.

Some additional thoughts:
This game has somekind of historical accuracy: Americans are bad - bombing civilians, spreading agent orange, napalming villages. But if you don't like to be bad, you don't like to play this game. Well, if you American - you may like such "patriotism".
It is the worst game of the Air Conflicts series.
If you want to get flight arcade game look at HAWX1-2 (better graphics, better gameplay, better replay value) or Ace Combat (fun gameplay).

I think it is very mediocre - this game is surely not my best buy.
Metacritics score: ~44 (http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/air-conflicts-vietnam)
